An excellent reference work that has been very well updated. I note from other reviewers that some were disappointed that there are no illustrations - this manual has never had illustrations and is purely a reference work and as such remains without equal.

I had a very elderly edition of this manual which I have used for years and found very valuable. I was keen to get the new one since, obviously, there have been a lot of new varieties introduced in the years since my old edition was published. The descriptions are just as clear as before and the number of entries is much larger than in the previous book but there are absolutely no pictures! (The old book had a generous sprinking of pictures, though not for every entry - would be too many to include). I daresay its a matter of cost but one picture per page surely wouldn't have broken the bank and would turn the book into a lovely browsing edition rather than something I'll just llok up when required.

A good update on an old favourite. Very full of clear descriptions, as up to date a manual as it could be, even with the huge numbers of new cultivars being introduced each year.

This not a picture book more like a dictionary so if you want pictures...move on but if you want detail info on all things tree and shrubs...it's what you need

Good for reference, but not a book to sit and read.

My copy of this book is excellent apart from missing pages 192 to 225,.Lavatera to Melliodendron.
I will be returning it for replacement fingers crossed for complete copy.

This was purchased as a gift. Arrived promptly, well packed. The Hillier name is always an excellent product.
